Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – August meeting

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am.  In August, Peter presented the programme of music which was given over to works by Tchaikovsky (1840-1893).  We began with a selection of ballet music from The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.  This was followed by the Love Duet from the Opera ‘Iolanta’ sung by Anna Netrebko and Roland Villazon.  We then listened to the Violin Concerto in D Minor.  After a short refreshment break we finished the morning with the Symphony No 1 in C Minor (Day Dreams).  Our next meeting is on Tuesday, 19th September, when Joy and Graham will present their choice of music.  Peter Ellement.
